Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching | Future of Learning | Scoop.it

Most important is the need for a different approach to teacher development that focuses on helping teachers with their own digital literacies. These are the skills to integrate technology into our daily lives and practices. Technology use, just like the language our students learn, needs to focus on things that are useful and that enrich and enable lives.

Great article. Makes the case for some IT staff to be pedagogically trained... a universal need

He makes some good points in this article with perhaps the most crucial being the need for adequate pre-service, and in-service, training for teachers. It's great to have the technology, but not being able to use it effectively really does hinder its efficiency. Interesting article..
MikeMathaess's comment, May 16, 2012 1:56 AM
An interesting article and I must agree. Classroom based technology and inter-active language technology will bring only limited benefits to the language student vis-à-vis deeper cognitive development, unless accompanied with rich tools to develop full social integration skills with information technology and these skills start with the teacher.

Challenging educational expectations of the social web: a web 2.0 far? - Nr Jubileumsnummer - 2015 - Nordic Journal of Digital Literacy - Idunn - tidsskrifter på nett

This short position paper reconsiders the exaggerated expectations that currently surround the social web and education within many sections of the education technology community. In particular four popular assumptions of the social web are challenged, namely: (i) expectations of enhanced participatory learning; (ii) expectations of enhanced equality of opportunity; (iii) expectations of learner affinity and interest; and (iv) expectations of freedom from proprietary constraints. The paper contends that many of these expectations stem from a tendency for education technology researchers and writers to over-value seemingly ‘new’ informal uses of the social web, whilst downplaying unequal power relations between individual learners and formal processes of education. The paper concludes that educationalists and technologists alike should strive to look beyond the rhetoric of the social web, and develop realistic and critical understandings of the ‘messy’ realities of social web technologies and education.
